The retail packaging of this new iPhone, the Apple iPhone 3Gs, has remained virtually the same. The already compact sales packaging has now shrunk even further, and a silver-lined S, which stands for speed, has been added to the type name. Furthermore, a picture of the smartphone Apple iPhone 3Gs is displayed on the front, whilst the Apple logo can be found on the side, just like the text displayed in silver. Opening a sealed packaging is always a good feeling, and as soon as the top cover is removed, the iPhone 3Gs becomes visible.
The British company Continental Mobiles has been selling exclusive cell phones and iPods online since September 2006. Gold versions of various cell phone brands and models are being sold.
